How painful it must be to always be in the spotlight, to have your dirty laundry out for everyone in the world to see. Sure, Britney puts on a great show when she’s doing her thing on stage, but is it fair for the world intrude on her personal life?

Rumors have been flying that the relationship between Britney and her husband Kevin (a.k.a. K-Fed) is on the rocks. Some sources say that they sleep in separate rooms, and that on a recent vacation in Florida they stayed at separate hotels. There have even been rumors that Britney plans to give Kevin the boot as soon as her family life settles down.

Listen to Mason and Amanda talk about Britney’s marital woes.

Mason:  Alright, so I’ll fess up to this. I was watching Entertainment Tonight the other night and I heard that Britney and Kevin stayed in separate hotel rooms on their recent trip to Florida.

Amanda:  Okay.

Mason:  So there’s all this speculation now, maybe is the divorce coming on?

Amanda:  But you know, they have been living in separate quarters...

Mason:  What?

Amanda:  ...in their own home.

Mason:  No!

Amanda:  Right.

Mason:  Well, he maybe snores.

Amanda:  Mmm, maybe.

Mason:  He could be a log-sawer.

Amanda:  But supposedly she’s on the main floor and he is in the basement.

Mason:  [laughs]. In the basement!

Amanda:  So, there’s that plus the separate hotels. So who knows?

Mason:  Well, he’s always been a kept man. He’s always been a kept man, come on!

Amanda:  [laughs].

Mason:  I mean, there’s always been that thing. It’s like what does he do? He does nothing, he sits there and mooches off of Britney.

Amanda:  Yes.

Mason:  So, like, if she’s finally, you know, if the two brain cells that she has have, like, clicked, and she’s realized what he’s doing, you think she’s justified in kicking him out?
